Breakfast in Ubon Ratchathani Day 6

This is the final post in this series. If you are visiting Ubon Ratchathani and looking for a place to have breakfast or you live here in Ubon and wondering if there are restaurants that offer a variety of morning meals I hope you found something new to try.

Nescafe Restaurant has been open in Ubon serving the morning crowd for a number of years. It is another simple eatery that is somewhat narrow in its menu. But for the many times I have been there myself and the other patrons go away happy and satisfied.

Nescafe Restaurant takes its name from what I believe is the biggest distributor of instant coffee in Thailand. It is everywhere. Present day there is a selection but even 14 years ago all one could find was Nescafe. In the mornings if I wanted coffee and wasn’t staying at a larger hotel I had to set out and find a 7 eleven to get a cup of Nescafe.

Though Nescafe is the name of this restaurant it serves breakfast as well. To make things easy and quick they offer a set menu. Here too you can find 4 western style breakfast dishes, as well as Kai Grata, Jok, Khao Dtom and even soft-boiled eggs with toast.

I decided to end this series with another local breakfast favorite, Jok. For those that don’t know Jok is basically rice porridge seasoned for taste and some meat and egg added for protein.

My wife ordered Khao Dtom or boiled rice. Like Jok, it is seasoned for flavor and if you want meat and egg can be added.

The meat in the Jok is liver and lemon grass is added to dilute the strong flavor. You can choose from pork, chicken or fish. I like to add some chili powder and I am good to go. One bowl of jok will fill you up and make you ready for a day of activity.

If you want something more they have small rolls with sausage and Ba Tawngno as well.

For drinks, of course you can get Nescafe coffee, but also there are some tea drinks and orange juice.

Again this is reasonably priced breakfast. Khao Dtom and jok are 25-30 Baht per serving. The dish of Ba Tawngno is included with Jok, other pastry around 10 Baht each. For the drinks 20 Baht for orange juice and teas 15 Baht.

The shop is small but comfortable with tables inside as well as on the sidewalk. Looking around you will see newspapers at virtually every table giving the impression people come here to eat and catch up on news before beginning their work day.

The staff is friendly and actually the manager or owner came by the table to say hello and ask who we are doing and is everything okay. This was done with a warm smile.

Nescafe is located on the corner of Srinarong Rd and Ratchawong Rd a couple of blocks east of the main Ubon Ratchathani Post Office.  Another restaurant for you to choose from when it’s time for breakfast in Ubon Ratchathani.

  1. Hi Darwin
    You must have a full belly after 6 days trying out food. Great to read that there are a few nice Thai places to eat aswell as the usual farang food about town. If living in Ubon its nice to know you can shop around and have a varied diet. My wife would love some of the places you post about. Stay well mate.

  2. Jay,

    You are so right. It has been a long time since I have eaten so many cooked breakfasts in such a short period of time. I do enjoy getting out in the mornings and experiencing the sights, sounds, smells and people while having a good breakfast.

    Just wanted to show there is are many choices for travelers and residents of Ubon when they want to go 9out for breakfast.

    Thanks for the comment.
